Comments Off on Beltline Model Mile Comes to Our Neighborhood!

That’s right folks – I can also post on here! I bet you never would have guessed. Steffi does such a great job keeping everything up to date that I have focused more on the Westview Neighborhood website ( We’re such nerds!

Anyway, yesterday at our neighborhood meeting they announced that the first mile of the Beltline will be constructed between Westview and West End. This is a massive effort that both neighborhood’s are honored to have!! On OCTOBER 20TH between the hours of 8:30am and 12:00 noon a major clean-up will take place in association with WEND, Park Pride, PATH, Trees Atlanta, and the BeltLine Partnership. Construction is set to begin by January 2008 and within a year we will have the Beltline “Model Mile” running through our neighborhood.

The “Model Mile” will feature a jogging path and an arboretum, complete with granite markers that identify the various trees. The AJC had a great write-up about it, and you can read it online here.

We are very honored to have the Beltline touching down in Westview/West End. I have read numerous times that people predicted our neighborhoods would be the last to benefit from the Beltline… and now we are lucky enough to be some of the first!

Please help out on October 20th during the clean-up!!! You need to register ahead of time by going to The effort is hoping to have 300+ volunteers.
